Whether you have a cottage garden, city garden or small garden and are looking to make a change to its structure, style or planting, there are many apps that can help you. As we've all been spending more time in our gardens of late, now is the time to focus in on the changes you've always wanted to make. Let these aid you.
Garden Plan Pro
Anyone looking to grow their own vegetables, plant a herb garden or harvest some fruits should look to Garden Plan Pro; simply plot your garden into it and then you can start planning out the planting areas. The app gives top tips for crop rotation and analyses weather local to you for optimum planting and harvesting dates.
Channel your inner landscape gardener by using AR or uploading an image of your outdoor space and then visualising the end result by adding all the design elements from flowerbeds to paving and plants. A brilliant app for anyone wanting to DIY the garden renovation, or collaborating with a team as all the plans are shareable.
Better suited to those with more experience, Home Outside lets you mock up a design in the same way a professional would, using hand-drawn elements rather than augmented reality. It's a brilliant tool and extremely useful when planning colour throughout the garden.
Home Design 3D Outdoor & Garden
Another good app for design planning, Home Design 3D lets you plot out the dimensions of your space and build from there, adding everything from sheds to plants and furniture. Be aware that the free version does not let you save designs, so it's worth the in app purchases if you plan on creating your final design in it.
As the name suggests, this app analyses your soil to work out its conditions and then give advice as to which plants will do best in your garden, ensuring full blooms every time.
Garden Tags is the app to use once your garden is planted. As well as plant identification, it has growing advice and plant care instructions so you can log every plant and be sure you're caring for it properly.
